It's an Errands Day

Thursday, June 09, 2011

Ran around today, shopping for new pillow case covers for my new king down pillows. They are always a cool temp, much firmer, and good for side sleepers. I need a good night's sleep. I also had to replace a pool chaise pillow. Yes, life is tough. I also stopped at Sears to inquire about a possible repair on my car. ..$265 I went to my local auto shop . ..$65! Sweet!

(ARE YOU STILL AWAKE? TALK ABOUT BORING YOU GUYS!)

I had stopped earlier at Autozone to get replacement headlight and fog light bulbs. They installed them for nada! Sears wanted $25. Came home, comfort dinner was pizza, then we did our walk. My pace was better and I liked that. Oh, I'm up to 166.2 now. I'm going to have to pay attention to change. The shower was good and I'm relaxing for the evening! Have a peaceful night!

A Lil More Listening, A Lil More Patience!

Wednesday, June 08, 2011

Had my followup with my Dr. today. This was the first since I left the hospital. Basically, he said be careful but do I wanted to do cardio and strength training wise. I advised him of my plan and he was cool. I still need assistance and will call back concerning a nutritional plan that will supplement building a little muscle. I do not want to add fat weight. All I have to do though is "listen" to my body! I believe that I was a bit too aggressive in losing that much weight since the end of January. I was hitting the cardio and my body reacted to it big time. To complicate things, I was having a hard time hitting the low end of my calorie window. Live and learn. I'm taking it moderately now and just trying to be safe about it all. I can do this. Out.

    You did things right by listening to your doctor, and planning a follow up. I know you'll follow whatever plans are set up, and succeed well at it.

A Productive Day - Simple Version

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

I got up at 6:00am and saw my wife out the door to work, did some Sparkin', took a nice shower, went to breakfast, went to Publix and Palm Harbor Natural Foods for some Rosemary and collect ingredients for dinner, mailed out letters, folded towels, had Bright House come and straighten out a bad internet modem/router, started my Baked Mojo Pork Center Cut Loin for dinner, had dinner with Dssecrets, (she loved the pork, black beans and brown rice!) then took my first walk since I left the hospital, (I got a good sweat and my breathing was great. Missed our walk time together.) updated my Sparkin' and now I'm gonna chill. Have a great evening, Y'all!

Program Regeneration!

Monday, June 06, 2011

I went into Fitness Tracker and put my own strength training together for Mon, Weds, & Fri. It is composed of 17 sets involving core, upper body, and lower body. I'll be doing light cardio on Tues, Thurs, and Sat.

I spoke to friend who is a personal trainer and pharmacologist. We have breakfast at a coffee house along with the band of usual suspects at least 2 or three times a week. He knows how I've trained over the last 5 months and saw me hit trouble.

I told him what I was going to do, based on my research on SP. He said it was sound, to add protein, work on strength and build a little muscle.

It feels good to ramp up a new program. I'm just going to take it easy and listen to my body. I go for my first followup with my Dr on Weds. I had registered for a 5K about a month ago so I'm asking him if I can walk it at a reasonable pace. He clears me, I'll watch myself.

And Sunday Ends The Visit!

Sunday, June 05, 2011

Had a fab breakfast with dssecrets, my sis, and mom. It was emotional in a good way. I am reminded that we are family and when we gather at the table, we listen and talk as a family. I really will miss my sisw and mom. I look froward to the day to come to live in Paradise. I think we can find ways so my sister can relax more as she is the prime caregiver for mom. I'm so glad we went to Kelly's in Dunedin, our home town. Best Eggs Benedict in Pinellas County! I will start going back there once a week. I was reguylar for the longest time and missed seeing Cindy, Allison,

We did a little walking on Main St. Dunedin. Mom and I got to sit a spell and talk while the ladies got to do a bit of shopping. I want my sis to have more freedom to do just that and a lot more.

Finally, we parted as they went in to Tampa to spend the night close to the airport. I'm already missing them. I will fly up soon to spend time with them. It was a great stay.
